Live Simply Everyday


We're so excited to welcome back Dorymar Perez to our 2023 design team. We can't wait to share her work with you. Before we jump into that, we want you to get to know Dorymar a little better. 


 My name is Dorymar Pérez, I am from “La Bella Isla del Encanto”, Puerto Rico! and I have lived in Connecticut for 8 years. I have 2 beautiful young girls and have been happily married to the love of my life for 20 years. Since I was a child, my favorite hobbies were drawing and making crafts. My first sticker collection was from Lisa Frank, I turned my mom crazy for them.  I discovered the wonderful world of scrapbooking 16 years ago; my husband invited a friend who hosted a scrapbook party at my house, and I fell in love with it instantly! Since that day, I can’t stop designing and creating! I am fortunate to be on the Design Teams for prestigious Scrapbook companies and I also had the opportunity to create projects for two of the most important stores in PR. I love to design very detailed projects, with many interactive elements. I always try to use all the items from the collection.  

Three fun facts about me are: 

  • I am a dog lover and spend almost half of my day talking to mine.
  • My favorite color is red, I love it that much that my wedding dress was red.
  • My other great passion is volleyball, I have played volleyball since I was 9 years old. Whenever I have the opportunity, I do it.
Hello friends, it's Dorymar today sharing a beautiful project. I fell in love with My Mind Eyes Company's new Simple Stories collaboration. The Wildflower collection is just perfect. I love the vintage look, the pastel colors, and all the flourish elements. They are amazing.
 For my project, I used the Blush 6x8 Sn@p Album. To match the cover with the collection, I painted with white paint. I combined patterned papers, photo frames, chipboards, bits and pieces, floral bits and pieces, foam stickers, and brads to decorate the cover. I used almost all the elements of the collection because this collection has a lot of attractive features.
On the cover, I made some beautiful shakers and created many layers with the different elements of the collection. I used the foam stickers to create my project's title.
The binder includes snap pages, kraft dividers, and pocket pages. I love to create fun stuff on every page. One of my favorite techniques is incorporating threads, layers, and dimensions. I love the dimension and a lot of beautiful goodies. On this page, I created a flap with a pocket on top with a tag. Inside you have space for photos and journaling.
On the right-hand page, I did my layers as usual to create my background. Then, I made creases and added some stapled yarn to generate texture using the paper. It's super fun to play with each of the pieces! To finish, I decorated it with the beautiful elements of the collection.
Pockets, tags, and inserts are always great options to create a fun look for your project!
I created several flaps with different patterns inside the flap to have more space for photos. It is impressive how each of the designs combines perfectly! I loved the result.
This project is full of space for many photos!
I hope my project inspires you to work with this beautiful collection. Working with this collection was very exciting.  Wildflower was an amazing collaboration between both companies. I hope it will be the first of many! Remember to visit my Instagram page for more ideas @dorymar_pl.
Happy crafting!
